Scout Walker Photosample
Although it's hard to tell from this photograph that this piece differs significantly from the production Scout Walker toy, take my word for it, it does. It's what's known as a photosample, a fully painted, assembled prototype, made for for use as a sales model or photography sample. Most of these pieces are assembled out of a combination of resin-cast and proto-molded parts, the latter of these requiring an aluminum mold such as the one seen here for their creation. This particular example came straight from a former Kenner photographer, so it's quite likely that it's the very same toy that was pictured on Kenner literature and packaging, such as action figure cardbacks.
